Newton's Third Law of Motion

    The Third Law of Motion states that for every action there exists an equal and opposite reaction. Also stated as Forces Come In Pairs.

    Here are some examples:

Bounce a ball downward and it bounces back upward toward you.

A rocket engine ignites forcing hot gases downward and the rocket moves up.

A roller skater tries to push against a wall only to find the wall pushes her away.
